I’ve posted all of these before, but thought I’d post some Halloween pears from previous years. I redrew Nospearatu and Pear Sematary, however.

Yes, February was a long time ago, but I’m still going to post my favorite pears of that month, and ask you to vote on your favorites. Like I said with my last pear of the month, I’m hoping to turn the winners into a calendar!
Staying on Budget:
You can vote using the poll on the sidebar. You can also write in pears from February 2013. I’ll leave the poll up for about a week, and then announce the winner!
Thanks for voting!
I’ve decided to bring back Pear of the Month. For those of you who are new, this is where I pick out comics and illustrations from previous months and ask readers to vote for their favorites. I’m bringing it back because I want to make a calendar for 2014, and I feel that this will give me a good sense of what I should feature in the calendar.
I had intended to do this for 2013, but never got around to it. I ended up buying a “Bygone Days”-themed calendar from the discount bin at Cartes Carlton. Of course, if I get this one for 2014 together in time, I plan to make it available in my Etsy shop!
We’ll start with January 2013 (no sense going back any further). Here are the contestants!

Here’s how it works: I’ll leave the poll up on the sidebar for about a week. In that time, you can vote as often as you like for as many pears as you like (you can even write-in pears). I’ll announce the winner next week!
Thanks for voting!
Even pears get depressed. I know I certainly do, and it can be very hard to hoist myself out of a bad mood. Sometimes I don’t even know why I’m feeling down, but knowing why doesn’t always help either. Every year, for instance, I notice my mood goes a bit sour when the seasons change, yet I can’t seem to stop myself from feeling that way. I’ve found that the best was for me to get over feeling down is to force myself to do something I usually enjoy– seeing friends, knitting, taking a walk (although that’s harder with all this snow in Montreal!). It can be really difficult, but it often helps.
This is one from a while ago that I redid for the mini comic Pears Gone Wild.

Pears also go pretty well in grilled cheese. This one with Whiskey Cheddar sounds quite good!
I wanted to make a pear calendar for 2013 using the winners of Pear of the Month, but that never materialized since I kind of abandoned Pear of the Month mid way through the year.(I still want to bring it back though). WordPress, however, kept a record of the most popular posts from last year. So here they are!
I want to thank all of you for reading Angry Pear. It means a lot to me. I make Angry Pear because it makes me smile and laugh, and sometimes it helps me work out some of my own anger issues… It’s rewarding to share these comics and drawings with readers who appreciate what I’m doing. So thank you all for reading, commenting, and laughing. Please keep sharing Angry Pear with your friends and family!
Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2013!
I had a lot of fun decorating my Christmas tree in Montreal this year, especially since I’ve amassed quite a few pear ornaments. Here are some pictures of my favorites!
Some pears like wearing bows. Some don’t!

Sorry for all the pear-motional posts lately. I’ve been making a lot of new stuff and want to share it!
This one is from “Pears Gone Wild,” one of the new mini comics I made for this year.
I’m really pleased with how this mini comic turned out. It’s hand-bound and 28 pages long. Plus I like the pink.
